It's a large gun, which might not be ideal for concealing unless there is a fairly good sized purse in mind.... Good for a range gun, though. Much depends on the intended use. Lot of shots with little recoil. Fairly effective, but not overly so.
It's fairly expensive, the ones I see are around $1100+. The ammo is not exactly cheap and it's not the sort of stuff you're likely to find at wal-mart. And ammo choices are somewhat limited, last I looked.
It wouldn't my choice as a first pistol, but I suppose there are worse choices. Ideally, you might wish to start her out with .22 LR pistol of some sort. I have a Ruger MK3 that my wife really enjoys shooting. Accurate, cheap to buy and feed. Great to learn on. The Browning Buckmark is similar in concept and a worthy choice as well.
From there I'd move to a more conventional cartridge, 9mm, 38 special & so forth.
